Bitter Cold…

Last night’s snow was a bit of a dud for most but there were up to 6 inches that fell over SE MA.  The intense snow bands just missed the coastline and stayed out over the water limiting most to a dusting to 2 inches.  Now that the snow is gone it is all about the cold as a lengthy Arctic blast grips the Northeast.

There is a Windchill Advisory in place for interior New England tonight as surface temps and gusty wind will create feels-like temperatures of 10-20 below zero.  The advisory expires tomorrow at 10AM but the cold won’t improve much over the next couple of days.  Highs will be in the teen and overnight lows will be either side of zero.  Even gusty winds on Thursday will make the day harsh with windchills below or near zero all day!

By Friday, the cold starts to abate but at the same time another storm system will be taking shape to our west.  Another “Clipper” system will dive in to the Mid-Atlantic from the Northern Plains.  This storm will be weak at first but will blow up when it hits the milder waters off the Coast and turn into a powerful Nor’easter.  The timing of this intensification and exact track are still in question but a sizeable storm is possible Friday night into Saturday morning.
